Barbara Guldenaar draws, paints (mainly watercolors) and gives workshops. In addition, she makes collages, installations and takes photos. Barbara lives in a studio house in the center of Krommenie, where she has the space to create, to exhibit and to give workshops.
“Drawing itself is inventing, building, making the structure. The colors give weight, bright blue against luminous orange vibrate together, and that energy, I want to let it dance".
” My drawings are carriers for stories; the communication over and over again between humans and animals, who lures whom?”
“Magical questions that make life light. Everything I do not understand receives a small drawing. They are annotations on life. This personal archive is the starting point of every new drawing.”
Works are available through the fine art gallery Posthuys on Texel and Artzaanstad exhibition and art center in Zaandam.
Reproductions of my work are available in different sizes and materials through Art in the Box and Loods 5.
You are welcome to visit the home studio (studio zap) in Krommenie where we exhibit, store, sell and lend out (framed) works of art and ceramic objects.
Barbara Guldenaar has been teaching at CREA, the Cultural Student Center of the University of Amsterdam, since 2015.
